While grocery shopping, I picked up a bouquet of three stunning sunflowers. I just love how they are so magical with their movements. I dug this bottle up out of the ground on one of my frequent ‘look for things in the ground," trips. My guess is that it dates back to the early 1900’s. It is a bottle of Watkin’s Face Cream manufactured in Winona, Minnesota. J.R. Watkins has been in business as a natural apothecary manufacturer since 1868. This photograph was shot in West Chester, Pennsylvania with a Canon 40D and manipulated with a chalk effect.

My life is like a well read book that’s never ending, at least for this moment in time. As I continually add new chapters to my book, I find that my photography plays a big part in it. This is most especially true as my great love and fascination with Mother Naure never wanes. It’s my hope that you, too, will share my joy as the pages in my book of life continue to flip forward! My Very Best, Polly Peacock
